.org/possibilities. >>> tomorrow, the supreme court will begin hearing arguments in two of the biggest civil rights cases to reach its docket in years, if not in decades. up for consideration, doma, the so-called defense of marriage act, and california's proposition 8. as the court prepares for an historic moment, more public figures are weighing in. we can now add senator claire mccaskill of missouri and senator mark warner of virginia to the growing number of current and former lawmakers throwing their support behind marriage equality. senator mccaskill wrote, "i have come to the conclusion that our government should not limit the right to marry based on who you love. while churches should never be required to conduct marriages outside of their religious beliefs, neither should the government tell people who they have a right to marry." senator mark warner announced his support for marriage equality in a facebook post. "i support marriage equality because it is the fair and right thing to do." one of the two lawyers arguing against california's prop 8, david boyce, has predicted vark victory. >> i think we're g

that was carried from slavery through the civil rights movement into today. for generations, this promise helped people weather poverty and persecution while holding on to the hope that a better day was on the horizon. for me personally, growing up in far-flung parts of the world and without firm roots, the story spoke to a yearning within every human being for a home. [ applause ] of course, even as we draw strength from the story of god's will and his gift of freedom expressed on passover, we also know that here on earth we must bear our responsibilities in an imperfect world. that means accepting our measure of sacrifice and struggle, just like previous generations. it means us working through generation after generation on behalf of that ideal of freedom. as dr. martin luther king said on the day before he was killed, i may not get there with you, but i want you to know that we as a people will get to the promiseland. so just -- [ applause ] -- so just as joshua carried on after moses, the work goes on for all of you, the joshua generation. for justice and dignity, for opportunity and freedo

like this? avery freedman is a law professor and attorney specializing in civil rights. he's joining us right now from cleveland. good to see you, avery. >> hi, fredricka. nice to see you. >> obviously the anonymous call by someone appalled with this facebook pose of an 11-year-old with a supposed assault rifle. >> it's very interesting. i think it's an extraordinary case because until such time as vice president biden and certainly the congress actually gets to the point of outlawing such weapons, they are legal. and in new jersey the question really became is it unlawful for a child to be posed in a facebook photograph. so what the local officials did, fredricka, is there was a raid on the house of police and children services. once the owner of the home, the father of this child called his attorney, the attorney says you've got to get out of the house until you get a warrant. so law enforcement left. it's this convergence of government trying jitter ri about the guns in the wrong hands and protect against the right of search and seizure and first amendment right of expression. >> so
of post civil rights era generation. to talk about that experience, related to the palestinians and appeal to young israelis, that's the broader message here. >> yes, i think we're a long way from cairo, you know. i think what president obama and his people and his staff understood that in israel, you have to touch the public opinion. and then the leaders especially been minimum n benjamin netanyahu will follow. this man walked back from lots of principles just to get the soldier back. netanyahu was very, very attuned to the public opinion. so i think they understood they have to grasp the young generation, the people of israel. i think president obama did that from the very first moment he stepped down in israel. you know he was off that plane, he took off his jacket, he was informal. he hugged every kid he saw on the way. he first he took netanyahu, he talked about you know his wife, his late brother. his kids. and today he took the israeli public. but you know, i'm not sure because i was listening to that speech and i was asking myself, was it the caring parent giving a pep talk to his
the civil rights movement and because of the history of america and because he said several crucial phrases, essentially said that israel will never go away. so he sort of laid out the honey, then he went and gave the vinegar line saying you have to actually now do a few things you don't like, and here they are. he did a good job from the israeli critics' perspective. >> the palestinians aren't happy, the disproportionate amount of time in israel and what he asked of the two leaders, made no public demand of netanyahu yet in israel he talked about the settlement issue. it is different than four years ago, on the arab street, including ra mal a, thought it would be different. now the israelis think we understand each other better here. >> one thing the president succeeded doing, strategically very important, john, the president set up a phone call between the prime minister of israel and the leader of turkey, the prime minister, and they both agreed turkey, a nate oh ally, israel a close ally, they were going to try to normalize the relationship. it is important for the region and the u.s. a
. what would you tell an independent minded gay man who believes the right to marry is a civil right? what would you tell him about why he should vote republican? >> i would tell him, look. we might not agree on every single issue but, for the most part, if you look at where we are at in our economy and look at where we are with educational choice and our military positions and positions on a strong defense in our party for the most part, we agree on almost everyone and doesn't make someone a bad republican. it means we are good republicans and disagree on one or two things. my god. i don't agree with my wife on 100% of the issues but it doesn't mean we don't have a great marriage. i don't see how that is not -- that's not a reasonable position for people to take. i think it's entirely consistent. i think it's a human position to take and i think it's a decent position to take. >> mr. chairman, quickly. this is rich lawrie's column and he was writing this for politico. he said so much depends on the substance. no rebranding is going to make a difference if republican policy is not re
argue in the civil rights movement and the vit vietnam war when you had this level of mass protest, it was relatively unprecedented in the history of that. no, ma'am one had ever seen a million people on the mall in washington before. this was a new -- this was a really new thing. >> yeah. >> i would argue in the time since, we have had a million people marching on washington for just about everything you could -- you could imagine, and the power of mass protest in this age in a practicingmented age to move things and the challenge to respond is impactful. you are seeing young people starting more businesses than ever before, trying to address things like that, they say we will start alternative energy companies. you are seeing people go at and try to create direct solutions to challenges as opposed to, you know, kind of rallying it. >> don't you think there is a difference between trying to do something on facebook or trying to do something on twitter and actually out there getting your hands dirty? >> sure. but i think there is also, you know, th
. this will insure safe guards for civil liberties and political rights and obviously encourage political participation. today we're looking to our prime minister designate forming his parliamentary government hopefully in the next couple of weeks. based on his consultations with parliament. which is an extension of the same consultation process that led to his designation as result of receiving the highest number of nominations. so i'm very proud of the progress so far. the hard work is definitely ahead of us. this is the jordanian model. what we're saying as the third way in the middle east. what we are saying that the arab spring is behind us, we in jordan are looking now at the arab summer for us all. which means that we all have to roll up our sleeves, it's going to be a bumpy and difficult road, but i am very encouraged with the process and i am very excited about the future. so again, mr. president, very welcome to jordan, i wish you all the success in what you've been able to achieve in the past several days and i hope the success will continue in your visit here to jordan, thank
start heading out of baghdad and go to damascus. once the civil war began in iraq and sunnis and shiites started to fight and american troops were caught in the quagmyre, there was invincibility that started to break. right now we are in a situation where events are taking place so quickly, the united states is not a factor right now. the u.s. looked weak in iraq and now in egypt and libya and syria, the rebels and revolutionary movements that are trying to become stable democratic movements or stable islamic movements are operating at a pace that is not 1 that the united states is controlling. if you look back from the start of the iraq war, you can see a decline in american influence in the region. >> just today there is over 50 iraqis killed and sectarian violence andry that is very much divided. there is some worry on the ground that maliki is saddam husseinesque and putting the fear among sunni groups and he can turn on them at any time. from what you know, what is the common day to day in a place like iraq. especially the major cities like those places that saw so much violence. wh

. it is the big national holiday, the biggest holiday of the year in iran right now. when he talks about the great civilization he is trying to reach out to the iranian people saying if we can have a diplomatic solution here you and your isolation in the world community, you end that and become a bigger part of the national community. even as he did that today he did say all options are on the table. twice he said as president of the united states he can't take that away. the president is hoping and believes there are several more months to continue the diplomacy, he is hoping that works. he said at every stop on this trip if it doesn't he reserves the right to use a military strike. >> he seemed to be reaching out beyond the ayatolla, beyond ahmadinejad speaking directly to the iranian people from amman, jordan. on another sensitive issue in response to a question the president seemed a little defensive about why the united states during his administration has not authorized military force to stop the slaughter in syria. listen to this. >> i think what your question may be suggesting is why haven
